NEW YORK (November 21, 2005) – DiBella Entertainment will cap off the year in the season's finale of “Broadway Boxing,” presented by Turning Stone Resort & Casino, in a fight card called “Season's Beatings,” on Thursday, December 15, at the Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center.
The announcement was made today by promoter Lou DiBella at Prime Grill kosher restaurant in midtown Manhattan. Unbeaten Dmitriy “Star of David” Salita will headline the show. A hero in his adopted hometown of Brooklyn, Salita (23-0, 14 KOs) looks to extend his unbeaten streak to 24 straight wins in the main event at the Hammerstein. In his most recent outing, on August 25, the former New York Golden Gloves champ captured the NABA light welterweight championship by dropping Shawn Gallegos with a ninth round TKO.
Dmitriy Salita had arrived.
The card will also spotlight Spanish Harlem’s pugilistic whiz kid Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana (15-2, 10 KOs). The budding Puerto Rican superstar has reeled off six straight wins on DiBella Entertainment's “Broadway Boxing” to extend his unbeaten streak to 10 in a row. The Rose of Spanish Harlem has improved with every performance, and local fight fans have embraced the gutsy Santana as one of their own.
The knockout artistry of Brownsville's Curtis “Showtime” Stevens will be on display in “Season’s Beatings.” Staten Island featherweight Gary Stark, Jr. also joins the fray Thursday night.
Tickets are priced at $150, $100, $80, $60 and $40, and are available by calling DiBella Entertainment at 212-947-2577. The “Broadway Boxing” card will air on a later date on MSG Network in New York, Fox Sports Net New England, Comcast Sportsnet Chicago and HDNET.
